[movies]Light Continues to Echo Three Years After Stellar Outburst - *Credit:* NASA [ http://www.nasa.gov/ ], ESA [ http://www.spacetelescope.org/ ], and The Hubble Heritage [ http://heritage.stsci.edu ] Team (STScI [ http://www.stsci.edu/ ]/AURA [ http://www.aura-astronomy.org/ ]) *Acknowledgment:* H.E. Bond (STScI [ http://www.stsci.edu/ ])
*Description*: The Hubble Space Telescope's latest image of the star V838 Monocerotis (V838 Mon) reveals dramatic changes in the illumination of surrounding dusty cloud structures. The effect, called a light echo, has been unveiling never-before-seen dust patterns ever since the star suddenly brightened for several weeks in early 2002. The illumination of interstellar dust comes from the red supergiant star at the middle of the image, which gave off a pulse of light three years ago, somewhat sim...

[movies]Hubble's Latest Views of Light Echo from Star V838 Monocerotis - *Credit:* NASA [ http://www.nasa.gov/ ], ESA [ http://www.spacetelescope.org/ ], and H. Bond (STScI [ http://www.stsci.edu/ ])
*Description*: These are the most recent NASA Hubble Space Telescope views of an unusual phenomenon in space called a light echo. Light from a star that erupted nearly five years ago continues propagating outward through a cloud of dust surrounding the star. The light reflects or "echoes" off the dust and then travels to Earth. Because of the extra distance the scattered light travels, it reaches the Earth long after the light from the stellar outburst itself...
